Bhaktha (devotee) is like the needle which is always drawn towards the magnet. But the needle has to be near enough; it has also to be clean enough. You stay far away and complain that Grace has not comet You do not scrape off, by the process of repentance, the mud and rust that prevent attachment.
You come near for some time and stray away into the distance. I don’t mean physical distance at all. You may be physically far, but mentally by My side. I do not measure distance in miles or metres; I am with you, in you, beside you, ever; only you have to be aware of Me and make use of My Presence.
– Sri Sathya Sai Baba
